The National, 26 May 2022: Films being shot fully or partly in Saudi Arabia will be able to apply for a 40 per cent cash rebate on production costs, the Saudi Film Commission has stated.
The authority has stated the new scheme known as the Film Saudi programme will be open to all local, regional and international film producers. Under Film Saudi, productions that recruit Saudi crew and talent and those that feature the Kingdom’s culture and people and showcase its landscape will qualify for the incentive.
The Abu Dhabi Film Commission also offers a similar incentive, with a 30 per cent cashback rebate on productions, including feature films, television dramas and commercials which are shot in Abu Dhabi.
